About Joseph

Hello All,

My name is Joseph, and I graduated with a B.S. in Computer Engineering in May 2013 from NJIT, summa cum laude and with an Honors College diploma. I tutored Computer Science at my university from Fall 2008 to Spring 2013 (at least 15 hours a semester, but several times that for most semesters) and have found it to be a very rewarding experience to help students understand complex material. I started web programming with PHP and MySQL about 10 years ago, and studied HTML and JavaScript even before then. I am also knowledgeable in C++, Java, AJAX, XML, Web Services, Grails, VHDL, and am learning/have a working knowledge of iOS and Android development, Amazon Web Services, and Git, among others.

Please note that I only tutor in person in New Jersey. If you're from another state, you may meet me in a public location here or we can meet virtually.

I'm looking forward to helping you with your web development, computer science, or computer engineering needs!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

C++

I have C++ programming experience and first learned it around 2006. I have tutored students at my alma mater, NJIT, helping them to approach class assignments that require the use of C++. I am not particularly experienced with operating system-specific programming, but I have some familiarity with the C++ Standard Library.

Computer Engineering

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from the New Jersey Institute of Technology. I graduated in May of 2013, summa cum laude, and with an Albert Dorman Honors College diploma. My studies included circuits, programming, FPGAs/VHDL, and digital design, the latter three of which I am strongest in. I have some familiarity with assembly language for the 68K microprocessor as well as MIPS.

Computer Programming

I have been programming for over a decade, with experience in a variety of languages such as PHP, Java, C++, VHDL, and others. I was self-taught before college, but had many courses on programming at NJIT that furthered my knowledge and experience. Languages at my alma mater, NJIT, include Java, C++, and VHDL. I have tutored PHP, Java, C++, Python, and others at NJIT as well.

Computer Science

My degree, Computer Engineering, can be thought of as a calculated blend between Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. My experience leans more towards the Computer Science side, as I started with web development using PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in my freshman year of high school. Other languages I know include C/C++, Java, VHDL, Python, Groovy (limited), C# (limited). I also have some experience developing apps for iOS and Android and am actively studying both.

Microsoft Windows

My first computer ran Windows 3.11, and I have used most of the major new versions since: Windows 95, 98, ME, XP, Vista, 7, and 8. Computers are my passion, and I have used one nearly every single day throughout my life. Though I have used other operating systems, Windows has always been my primary operating system, and thus I have the most hands-on experience with it.

PHP

I first learned PHP in February 2004 and have been programming with the language ever since. I feel it is the language I'm most proficient in, and I've also tutored it at my university (NJIT). One example of a public-facing site that I programmed is a schedule for Seton Hall University.

Excellent Tutor — Excellent tutoring skills. I could tell right away that he has had a lot of experience explaining new and complex subjects, so tutoring is not a new thing for Joe. His skill and knowledge on the subject is excellent, and his instructional skills are just as good. He went over the subject with me until I felt good about my degree of knowledge. Before the first session I informed him with detail of ...
